10 Designs & Products for Crushing Your New Year’s Resolutions
When December rolls around, it’s hard to think about anything other than family, food, and gift giving. But we all know that a new year—and resolutions–are on the horizon. Whether you’re coming up with new goals for your health or career, or trying to stick to resolutions you kicked butt at last year, using the new year as a means of positive change is something we can get behind. Something else we support is custom gear for crushing your resolutions. Because what’s a better motivator than inspiring swag? Put a positive reminder on a custom water bottle so you drink more fluids, or customize the perfect gym tank top to get you to that early spin class. Whatever your goals, we’ve got something for everyone. Below, check out some of our favorite designs & products for specific New Year’s resolutions.

After your morning coffee (or two), you’re probably familiar with the feeling of your body screaming “water, please, water!” It’s not always easy to get in those eight servings a day but if you’ve resolved to hydrate more in the new year, be inspired by a trendy water bottle. We love the 17oz Copper Vacuum Insulated Water Bottle in rose gold. It’s so chic you’ll want to take it with you everywhere you go, which means you’ll be more likely to chug that H20. Customize it with your favorite quote or funny saying (wine or water, anyone?) or purchase these as a holiday gift for your employees and put your logo on the front.
Since getting healthy and exercising more is probably the most popular resolution ever, we had to make our case for custom gym gear. Don’t get in a rut with your old, boring tees that make you want to curl up in bed and forget about that gym membership. Be inspired by a fun, bright, and unique tank or tee that’ll have everyone in the yoga studio asking “where did you get that?” Or, if you want to stay warm between workouts, put a custom “down dog” design on a cozy Port Authority Core Fleece-Lined Soft Shell Jacket. It’s lined with microfleece and is water resistant for those soggy early spring days.
Raise your hand if you need more sleep–we know we sure do! Sometimes it’s hard to shut off at night and get to bed at a reasonable time, just to have to get up early and do it all over again. This year, if you’re prioritizing those zzz’s, make sure you have the perfect comfy blanket to help you snooze. We swoon for the super soft Port Authority Plush Texture Blanket. You’ll feel like you’re in a 5-star hotel bed and, while it’s perfect for nighttime, we’d sure curl up for an afternoon nap with it, too. Customize it with your favorite sleep quote, or let everyone know you’re the nap queen and you take your sleep seriously.
Maybe brussels sprouts aren’t your thing, and that’s ok. You can still stick to your eating more veggies resolution with some healthy green smoothies. And if you don’t have time to drink them before work, our 16oz Classic Tervis is perfect for taking it on the go. It comes in so many fun colors that will brighten your morning. It’s double wall insulated to keep your smoothie fresh and BPA-free, so health all around! And how fun is this “beets don’t kale my vibe” design? We love a good veggie pun!
It’s easy to fall into the holiday rut of ordering takeout and not cooking at home. We get it! Those holiday parties keep you busy. But in the new year, your health will thank you for making your own meals, and so will your wallet! If you’re trying to save as your goal, start by bringing your own lunch to work. Whether it’s a classic turkey sandwich or homemade stir-fry leftovers, our Koozie Lunch Cooler is perfect for toting the goods. We love the bright colors and its versatility–use it for lunch during the week, and put a 6-pack in it on the weekend! And for all our carboholics out there–make this “carbio” design yours.
Do you find yourself running around in the morning, grabbing a coffee or tea to go, and inhaling it on your way to work? Find some time to slow down and be present in the new year with a warm mug and a friend. Our 11oz Metallic Mugs are so chic–seriously, we want one too–and will look perfect on your desk or in the kitchen for your whole office. A trendy mug with this beautiful “life begins after coffee” graphic is a great reason to take 10 minutes to enjoy a drink, disconnect, and be present in the new year.
Maybe you’re trying to read more in the new year, and e-readers and tablets are great. But if you’re a multitasker and audiobooks are more your thing, then we have the perfect new year accessory for you. Our Micro True Wireless Earbuds are perfect for getting in your books on the go. Whether you ride the subway on your morning commute or want to listen to that new murder mystery at the gym, wireless earbuds are easy to pop in and get you going in no time. They also come with a cool carrying case that charges them, so you’ll never run out of power…or plot twists. Our favorite way to customize these is a chic book graphic. It’s understated and will have everyone giving them a second glance.
So you spent a little more time with your dog and Netflix than you meant to last year. That’s ok, turn it around in the new year by keeping a frisbee on hand. And if you’re saying “what, a frisbee?” stick with us here–because who doesn’t see a frisbee and automatically want to toss it around? Take it with you to the park or your work event and you’re sure to start up a game with old and new friends. These Transparent Frisbees are our fav, and come in a bunch of bright colors. Put your favorite saying on it, or a photo of you, your pet, or anything that’s a conversation starter!
Resolve to be more grateful in the new year, and get started with a gratitude journal. It just takes a few minutes each day but can make a big difference. Whether you wake up in the morning and write down three things you’re grateful for, or tuck into bed at night and write about the things that made you feel gratitude that day, this resolution can help you put your best foot forward. Get started with our Medium Ombre Hard Cover Notebook. We love the calming ombre hues and we’re sure it’ll look perfect with an inspirational quote on the front–like this retro “positive vibes only” graphic.
Not changing anything this year? You do you! Resolve to stay your awesome self, and if you feel like telling the world about it, put it on a t-shirt. Wear it to the gym, to work, or just to bed for yourself, and let the world know you’re great just the way you are. The Hanes Nano Tees in short and long sleeve are perfectly trendy for your non-resolution. They’re budget-friendly, super soft, and come in all kinds of colors and sizes.
